Om emnet

Technology permeates modern societies for better or worse. Faced by the problems of balancing the vices and virtues, various scholars have called for a rethinking of prevailing ideals of just and desirable technology development. This course aims at qualifying the participant’s ability to understand, evaluate and participate in these debates. We shall do so by pursuing questions like: How has technology traditionally been legitimised? How has the dynamical relationships between science, technology and society been modelled? Are there any novel challenges of technology assessment in our time? By entering various cases and technology controversies we shall simultaneously discuss and evaluate implications of various answers given to these questions.
